Hailing all Honeys!
Past or present, near or far, bedazzled or bewildered!
The Burning Man Project and the Burning Man event face some harsh decisions to ensure their survival. In addition to the event's cancellation, BMP has pledged to refund all purchased tickets in the DGS and FOMO sales if requested. In order to make up the shortfall, BMP is asking individual DGS holders to donate all or part of their ticket purchase back to the Burning Man Project in an effort to mitigate their financial loss. This means asking our 22 ticket purchasers to donate about $1200 dollars, $27,000 total, to the organization.
We want to ask ALL of our extended community at Milk & Honey to help raise this amount of money to redistribute and share the onus of giving onto us all. Just as Burning Man is enabled and directed by collective effort and participation, we strongly feel that we have a communal responsibility to help Burning Man and shoulder the monetary burden asked of our members.
Please help Milk & Honey (formerly Sukkat Shalom) come together as a community to financially support BMP, their attendant projects and labor, and invest in all that makes our dusty desert home! Our community gathered around the promise of Burning Man in 2008 so please help us raise the funds necessary for the BMP's survival! This campaign is live from APRIL 27th-MAY 18th.
We knows times are tough and appreciate any donation amount. However, we also ask you to think about how Burning Man has affected you and the value you place upon it. To help quantify, our suggested donation amounts correspond with real costs of playa life (e.g. $83 for a burner bus ticket, $140 vehicle pass, $300 M&H camp dues, $475 BMan ticket, $1000 for tix, transport, and dues/approximate DGS purchase amount).
We are so grateful for both your generosity and membership in this wild and wonderful collective! THANK YOU for helping keep this event, this community, and this ethos alive!!
Love, Milk & Honey (and Sukkat Shalom, Inc)
